AJ Michalka is a fan of, well, fans. “I overheat on planes,” says the star of ABC’s Schooled, so she carries an old-school handheld style. Bonus: Her Duvelleroy fan is “beautiful and elegant,” which helps her stay chic and cool.
The actress, 28, tells Us more about what’s in her handwoven purse.
The Big Picture
“I always keep my Contax camera with me. I just love the look of film.”
“This is grandma-ish of me, but I carry a checkbook. Sometimes I pay people with a check!”
“I swear by EO’s lavender hand sanitizer. The pull-down trays on airplanes are super dirty, so I use it to wipe everything down before I eat.”
“I’m really into hard-copy books. I’m about to finish Afterglow by Eileen Myles. It’s a memoir about Myles’ dog that passed away. I recently lost my dog, and the book has really helped.”
“I love the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream lip balm. I always trust it. I never dry out.”
